This week's episode sees a lengthy review segment, as we discuss Marvel's latest superhero introduction, "Ant-Man," featuring a youthful looking Michael Douglas and a buff looking Paul Rudd, and Rupert Goold's courtroom thriller "True Story," which prompted objections from Cal concerning its casting. Our latest dip into world cinema saw Cal test out the Spanish period serial killer drama "Marshland," which made at least a visual impression, while Pete saw the coming of age tale "Les Combattants," the English translation of which is laughably off-the-mark. Elsewhere, an Oscar-nominated performance from the 90s gets a dressing down, the under-utilized Felicity Jones is the subject of our sympathy, and a French Lesbian director-actor romance is but a chapter in the story of Adele H.
